Lead SAP developer/architect                                                                Walnut Creek, CA 94598
                       I have been working on the SAP system since 1993. Started as developer then I have become from junior consultant to
                       a senior lead of development. The most typical responsibilities are to analyze, design and implement interface solutions
                       across SAP and 3 party modules. I have experience with all core modules, and developed interfaces to B2B, BW and
                       CRM instances. Based on my experience with SAP, its ABAP language and having lead small teams I would find
                       solutions quickly and deploy them efficiently, potentially coordinating with off site team members.
                       My early role working with mainframe operating systems enabled me to acquire a system overview and to have insights
                       into business applications. These skills came handy when applying them in the later years.
                       Please, find below the professional background focusing on SAP experience. Amongst the industry specifics I worked
                       closely with Apparel & Footwear Solution (AFS), IS-Oil and Banking. Below are the main contact points at the clients –
